What do you mean specifically with “Patch-level Random Tune”? Are you using the V1.4.2 OS?

I overlooked patch-level RndTune in 1.4.2 - thanks for pointing that out!

One additional idea: wave folding for the analog oscillator types.

Hi,

Could also pay 200€ for having a FM Yamaha style oscillator model (Phase modulation oscillator) and maybe forth, back and forth and back envelope modulation source for all the envelopes (reinterpreting or selecting the last sustain phase as such).

And ¿would it be to much to maybe have a couple of Free Envelopes as in the Yamaha AN1x? (¿maybe chose which envelope type to use as in the filter section?). Pardon me if I'm asking too much :)

Cheers

Hi John,

I would also be willing to donate to the developer fund.

There is a small company in the modular world that has developed some wonderful digital modules called Mutable Instruments. I have several of the modules and they sound great. Since they are built for modular, they are one "voice" and have no memory. I have often thought if one could have a polyphonic Mutable Instruments synth, it would be tremendous.

Their module "Elements" is a combination air, string and solid surface "exciter" combined with a resonator.
"Braids" is an oscillator module with a variety of digital oscillator types and wavetables different from what is in Solaris
"Rings" is a resonator module similar to the one incorporated in Elements but with more options.
"Clouds" is a granular audio processor with delay/reverb.

There is a company that has produced "plug-in" versions of 3 of the Mutable Instruments hardware modules called "Softube".

I am not an engineer so I have no idea what it would take to incorporate the DSP algorithms of any of the Mutable Instrument modules into the embedded system of the Solaris but if any of them (or all of them!) could, I think it would take the Solaris to the next level sonically. "Elements" with 10 voice polyphony and memory for settings would be incredible.

I know this would also involve licensing but the MI owner Oliver Gillet has licensed to Softube and another modular company "Free State FX".

Here are some links:

Thanks. Brett

Thanks for the suggestions, Brett. It’s always of interest to find unique and useful modules - I’ll give them a look!

I would be willing to bankroll a sound designer to do a full bank of classic synth patches, but this would require finding a professional sound programmer who also has a Solaris, which might be a challenge. (I've been listening to a lot of Gary Numan lately and just love the synth tones he gets, which I think were a lot of MiniMoog and P5)
